Among autonomic neurons, sympathetic neurons of the major pelvic ganglia (MPG) are unique by expressing low-voltage-activated T-type Ca2+ channels. To date, the T-type Ca2+ channels have been poorly characterized, although they are believed to be potentially important for functions of the MPG neurons. In the present study, thus we investigated characteristics and molecular identity of the T-type Ca2+ channels using patch-clamp and RT-PCR techniques. When the external solution contained 10 mM… CONTINUE READING
